An Irish priest was given an almighty shock when his sound system blasted rap music during a livestreamed Mass. 

Speaking to an empty church, reported by The Irish Post to be in Burtonport, Donegal, Father Pat some how managed to play a rap song by grime artist Black the Ripper at the start of his blessing on Wednesday.


He only makes it through 'in the name of the Father, and of the son' before the music cuts across him and booms around the church. 

During an online Mass on Wednesday at a church in Donegal Father Pat suffered some technical difficulties when a rap song began playing over his opening blessing

Father Pat tries to continue despite the mishap but suddenly the words 'Ok, it's Black the Ripper' interrupts him and he is forced to try and turn the music off.

Eventually, a few seconds into the rap titled Young Prophet, he managed to pause the music and he can be heard chuckling at the incident. 

'Black the Ripper, a wee bit of rap in the morning wakes you up,' he joked.

Seemingly unfazed by the technical hitch he says 'anyway still nice to see you all' and continues with the livestream. 

Comically he added: 'I hope that didn't do anybody's blood pressure any difficulty.' 

Taking the mishap in good spirits, the Kincasslagh Parish Facebook page shared a picture of Black the Ripper's album cover with the caption: 'Please stand for our opening hymn...' 

Seeing the funny side, the local parish Facebook account shared a picture of Black the Ripper's album cover captioned: 'Please stand for our opening hymn'

People quickly took to the comments to join in the hilarity, with one person saying it was the highlight of their day. 

Another wrote: 'You really couldn't make it up. Something for everyone at Fr Pat's Mass.'

'Oh my god it was brilliant father pat! If we weren't awake at that point well we surely were after that rap,' said another. 

One woman added: 'Gee for a moment I wasn't sure where I was! Then I realized that Fr. Par was equally as startled as we all were! Good on ya!'

Black the Ripper, real name Dean West, had a heart attack and died at the age of 32 last year.

He was well known as an advocate for the legalisation of cannabis in the UK.

Premier League social media blackout set to be agreed as clubs unite in powerful anti-racism message

PREMIER LEAGUE clubs are set to agree a social media boycott, according to reports.

Top-flight teams want to send a message that racism will not be tolerated and will launch a war against online hate.

According to Daily Mail, teams are planning to go silent on social media for 24 hours either side of their game on the 'Weekend of Action' between May 1-3.

And the report adds that the Premier League will also boycott social media for the duration of the round of fixtures.

Clubs have been asked to confirm their support for the plans by 2pm on Monday 19 April, the report states.

The move is a bid to ramp up pressure on social platforms to act against online hate and abuse after a spate of recent incidents.

It comes after Swansea ditched social media for a week in a self-imposed seven-day exile.

Rangers also followed suit in Scotland with a boycott of their own.

Thierry Henry last month told SunSport's Troy Deeney why he quit social media.

The Arsenal legend shut down his accounts to take a stand against online abuse.

Henry explained: "Even if you have two million comments that are great, if you have one or two or three that aren’t, it has an impact on you.

"I’m a man, I’m 43, but I’m still trying to figure out what kind of person I can be.

"So just imagine when you are a kid and what it can do to your mental health.

"The sheer pressure of not being on Instagram or Twitter or whatever is second to none for kids.

"I’m always going to fight for my community and my sport. Being black and in football, I’ve seen too many people suffer.

"But let’s not forget about the rest. That’s why I mentioned bullying and harassment and the impact it can have on you mentally.

"People go to the extent of committing suicide. Not only black people are getting abuse on social media, not only football players."

The France legend added: "There is freedom of speech. But you can’t shout whatever you want in an airport, a cinema, a police station. This is my point: accountability.

"Wilfried Zaha got abused and we find out after that the kid is 12 years old. How do you have an account? How can we not know who you are behind that account?"
